Dead Kennedys @ Max Watts

The Dead Kennedys were the main influence for some of my favorite bands, while I had never really gotten into them, Greenday, The offspring and The Living End all got at least some of their sounds from them. When the chance came up I had to jump at it. With a 40 year span andContinue reading “Dead Kennedys @ Max Watts”

Gang of Youths @ The Forum

I have never seen The Forum as busy as it was on first show on The Gang of Youths Say Yes to Life tour. For a Sunday night the vibe was filled with energy, the crowd stood ready for the first note as the band took the stage. The tour manager let us into theContinue reading “Gang of Youths @ The Forum”

The Super Jesus @ Max Watts

The Super Jesus played at Max Watts this week to a packed house. I know everyone has loved the band forever but I only started listening to them last year and when the chance for a media pass came up I jumped at it. With a show like this there is no need for aContinue reading “The Super Jesus @ Max Watts”

Courtney Barnett @ Festival Hall

Walking to the box office to get my media pass, I got punched in the face with a dank cloud of smoke from a joint, there was no sense of anxiety in the air like there usually is at Festival Hall. Once inside the vibe was relaxed, everyone was there to listen to the musicContinue reading “Courtney Barnett @ Festival Hall”

Circa Survive @ The Corner Hotel

I haven’t been to The Corner in a while, I’ve avoided shooting there lately as they sometimes remove the photo pit and i have become a bit snobby, my days of getting the shit beaten out of me while photographing bands have past, I really just don’t have the energy anymore. But returning there IContinue reading “Circa Survive @ The Corner Hotel”

The Presets @ The Forum

By the time I got to The forum on Saturday night I was well and truly ready for bed after a really long week, The place was packed full of face chewing punters, there was plenty of opportunity to by some pills outside among the smokers but I just wanted to get my work doneContinue reading “The Presets @ The Forum”

The Rubens @ The Pier Live

Night two, The Rubens, I have shot them before at Beyond the Valley so I knew this was a band I wanted to see again. Friday night was cold as hell and the drive to Frankganistan was a long shit one, the wind was blowing the rain sideways like pin pricks, I was told theContinue reading “The Rubens @ The Pier Live”

The Brian Jonestown Massacre @ The Forum

This is my first gig of three this weekend, and my first time to test out my 16-35mm lens at a show, The Forum is a reasonably big venue so I was expecting to be able to get the whole stage in at the 16mm end, but with such a big band with so manyContinue reading “The Brian Jonestown Massacre @ The Forum”
